. proposing a law to effectively overturn roe v. wade by giving equal protection to unborn fetuses. but paul is also trying to broaden his appeal. today he announced he supports a pathway to legal status for the 11 million undocumented immigrants in the u.s. >> republicans need to become parents of a new future with latino voters or we will need to resign ourselves to being a permanent minority status. >> reporter: this is a surprising move for a republican backed by tea party voters many of whom po pose such a proposal but he is looking to 2016 and will need more than a loyal but small fan base to get there. >> thanks very much. i'll see you in a little while. senator paul is joining us live from capitol hill. senator, thanks very much for coming in. >> we just need clarification. your immigration proposal you outlined today does that call for a pathway to eventual citizenship for those 11 or 12 million illegal immigrants in the united states? >> the main reason i felt i had to add my own proposal to the bipartisan proposal is my proposal adds border security and ensures that border securit
of the signing of president obama's landmark health care reform law. three years later and the bill is still under attack from republican lawmakers. but increasing number of states that previously opposed the law are now signing on to its medicaid expansion program, with some big surprise turnarounds from states like arizona, and florida. so that leads us to our question of the day for all of you. will obama care stand the test of time? talk to me on twitter. my handle is @alexwitt. and i will be reading some of your tweets throughout the day. a critical move by congress this week to delay furlough notices for hundreds of thousands of pentagon civilian employees. the house passed a bill thursday to extend funding for workers facing sequestration cuts. the measure gives the pentagon time to decide on how best to make those cuts. and joining me now is democratic congressman william enhart. thank you so much for being here, sir. i do appreciate that for this early hour. >> good morning, alex. >> i want to ask you about this whole situation. put it into context for us. how much of an impact does
of the rule of law for the state department inside baghdad. he returned there this week to work on investment project and really spent the day trying to stay safe. he joins us now by phone live in baghdad after leaving his hotel due to the danger of the bombing attacks. dave, thank you for joining us. what can you tell us about today? >> thanks, bret. the ten-year anniversary of the invation of iraq was marked by some tension reminiscent of the worst days of the war. bombs went off across baghdad today is. resulting in multiple deaths and injury. as we drove around baghdad today we saw the result in closing of government offices and businesses early. traffic jacks and some gridlock across the city. the same time, today was marked by new political uncertainty. lack lab announced provincial elections would be put off for six months. iraqi government sources are telling us now that the delay will be extented for all provinces across iraq. so in some, while the security has mostly improved in iraq over the last few years, the anniversary was a reminder of the darker days. >> bret: yeah, dave, wha
john hickenlooper signed into law some of the toughest gun legislation in the country. >>> two huge rocket engines from apollo moon missions have been recovered from the depths of the atlantic ocean. after nearly 40 years, the engines have been brought up from the ocean floor by the ceo of amazon.com. the engine fell back to earth once their fuel is spent. they weigh over 18,000 pounds. so far they can't i've which missions the rockets were from. nasa called it a historic find. and basos it was an incredible adventure. >>> bill karins joins us on weather. i didn't know he was a huge space buff. >> that's what i would do if i had millions. >> let's go find something. exactly. >>> good morning, everyone. the nation is really struggling to get out of this winter weather pattern. it's very cold in the northwest with snow showers around pipe want to compare where we're at right now compared to last year. this is last year at this time. almost all of the lower 48, pretty much east of the rockies had no show whatsoever. we had a pretty good snow pack in areas of the west. as we look at wha
this should be handled the law doesn't crack down on people's ability to tap into private exchanges. one thing i think it truly highlights here, if there is a need in social media, even extending into the law breakers, to learn more about what happened, it does, does it not, say something about the energy in this country to produce some truth in this matter? >> yeah. i think there should be more protection for intellectual property on the internet, for people's own communications but i certainly have no faith in the privacy protections now. that is why my e-mails are pretty boring. this is a, dealing with sensitive matters of national security does raise a question, i think, whether classified information may have been compromised and what exactly were the nature of these communications. and, when you consider that other administration officials, former epa administrator, lisa jackson, were using nongovernment chan dmels for their -- channels for their e-mails you have to wonder what is going on inside the administration more broadly. martha: one of the bigger questions that surfaced the last
. at a conference in new york city hall they'll be calling for passage of neufeld gun laws that so far are struggling to find support in congress. limiting the number of rounds in magazines to ten bullets. >> you can't get the deer in three shots, you shouldn't be hunting. you're an embarrassment. putting ten rounds, limiting it to ten rounds makes a difference. makes a difference in terms of how many shots you can get off before someone can intervene. >> meantime, new york governor andrew cuomo tells "new york times" that he is in favor of changing the tough new gun law to allow ten rounds of magazines instead of seven because seven-round magazines currently are not manufactured. that law is set to take effect april 15th. >>> we may narrowly avoid a government shutdown with a few days to spare even. the house is expected to vote on a short-term budget measure today that would keep the government funded beyond march 27th. the senate passed a six-month budget measure yesterday that keeps most of the automatic across the board budget cuts in place. >> this may be the first story people l
background checks and really tough gun trafficking laws. >> in trying to get anything. i mean, what democrats are trying to do right now, they're looking at a tom coburn, mark kirk, looking at republicans that might sign on to a bill in the senate. even if they can get that accomplished, it comes to every week on the show, it's still not clear you can get any of this stuff through the house. there's not any house republican out there clambering for, hey, let's do universal background checks. they don't want to do anything. you get background checks through the senate and dies in the house just like it'd be possible you could get a bragra bargain in the senate. i think it's possible you get an immigration deal and it dies in the house. i don't think any of these are a fo forgone conclusion. to make significant movement on these issues. i'd say immigration's in a different category. i do think the politics, that rnc report last night, rand paul speech last night are moving in a direction where republicans probably have to compromise. i don't know that necessarily means they do compromise. >> th
, the law gives you a certain age upon when you can't consent. when you're 13 years old, you don't have the legal capacity to say, okay. even if you do say it's okay, the law says you don't know enough, and therefore, it's not okay. >> ryan, just like in steub steubenville, social media is playing a part in this, some say revictimizing the alleged victim here. here's one of the tweets, even if it was all his fault, what was a 13-year-old girl doing hanging around with 18-year-old guys? tough on the victim. >> yeah, it does. you know, it gives them a sense of what really happened. they are going to investigate and look into everything and social media gives them certain leads. when you see comments like that, you say they don't understand what happened here. as joey said, that 13 year old cannot consent. they are not at the age where they can consent. it's not about hanging out with somebody, it's about the fact these young boys, if, in fact, they are guilty, should not have done this. >> let's talk about the culture of athletes, especially football players. what does it say about the cu
global govern mans. not an executive authority with a mandate telling people what to do through laws made, but a group of cities and mayors and counselors working together across borders voluntarily developing best practicing, exploring common urban virtue to solve problems that states have proven no longer able to take care of. i won't bore you here, it's boring important as it is. but with i can name for you inner city networks already in operation, you would be shocked and suppress a long yaun, the names are boring and bureaucratic, but the reality of the institutions is extraordinary. one of the most important institutions nobody has ever heard of, for example, is the united cities and local governments uclg. 3,000 cities and local authorities that meet globally every year and the networking cities around work and environment, transportation, immigration, security, and a number of other issues. i hadn't heard of it two years ago. i doubt too many people other than that the urban specialists in the room have heard of it. but it is a living organization. most people would say i know wha
of the matter is that the law states that the president of the united states is required to present a budget to congress by the first monday in february. that was the first monday in february, we are six weeks beyond that, the president has flagrantly, flagrantly ignored his statutory responsibility to bring to the united states congress a budget. now some folks on the other side say, it happens all the time. don't worry about that. it happens all the time. well, as a matter of fact, mr. chairman, just one term, president obama has missed the budget deadline more than any other president. he's now missed it four out of five times. in the 90 years between 1923 and 2013, president obama is the only president to miss the deadline two years in a row. he's the only president who missed the deadline three out of four years in his first term and he holds the record for the longest delay, 98 days, maybe he's -- maybe that's the record, he's trying to beat. so i want to commend again my colleagues in the congressional black caucus for bringing forward a budget. i think it's extremely important that w
-- transitional administrative law and later on when the peace was negotiated, there was an assumption that the players were going to abide by the rules. this assumption was wrong. some had no intention of abiding. they went along, but as soon as they got into power, they started flouting the rules, blatantly. i mean, explicitly, it is stated in the constitution of certain institutions are independent, like the central bank. the law made clear that it was independent of the government. i was the head of the media committee, and restructured a media commission that was intended to be independent. all of these have been reined in and the auspices and the control of the prime minister have done it on the basis of, well, these all have some executive functions and therefore they should be part of it. they are abusing the semantic definition. that really means a kind of hijacking of the power of all these institutions, which are the guardians of the democratic system. once these have gone, what do we have for this democracy? the americans should make it clear where they stand on these issue
drinks, bloomberg wants the nation's first of its kind law requiring retailers to hide their cigarette and tobacco products. >> these laws would protect new yorkers, especially the young and impressionable new yorkers, from pricing discounts and exposure to in-store displays that promote tobacco products -- products whose use is addictive and whose consequences can be deadly. >> let's bring in republican strategist and adviser to speaker john boehner david winston. we're joined by democratic strategist doug thornel former national press secretary for the democratic national campaign committee. good to see both of you. good morning. >> good morning. >> good morning. >> david, what do you think? let's hide cigarettes and sig cars behind the counter maybe? >> look, in terms of cigarettes, obviously they have significant health hazards but, you know, having been someone who's been involved on the hill and involved with the speaker one of the most precious things you have is time. i have to say he could be doing other things i think would probably help the city a lot more focusing on educat
rewarding them for breaking the line or breaking the law. without rewarding them for cutting in front of the line so they don't have a special and unique pathway so that those who came here legally who paid the fines and waited patiently are not penalized by letting people cut in front of them. i think there is a way to do this and i would call it earned legalization status. i think there is a way to do that. i think the rubio reforms -- >> is it just legalization status or eventually under certain conditions citizenship? >> well, sure. i'm just saying no special pathway for rewarding lawmakers. i think there is a way of regularizing this process so people can get in the back of the line and become a citizen just like anybody else does in society. we just don't want to reward them by giving them an advancement in the line in front of all the people who have been waiting patiently and playing by the rules. >> do you support any new restrictions on guns? >> well, i think the loophole issue is one that is going to be debated here in the house, which is are we getting at the fact that peo
